Poshburger Bistro, the latest venture from Michelin-starred chef Conrad Gallagher, brings visitors face-to-face with exotic wild game, albeit wild game that’s sandwiched on a bun. The gourmet eatery’s chefs craft burgers from organic, free-range, grass-fed animals—wild boar, Black Angus and Kobe beef, lamb, ostrich, and elk—as well as from fresh tuna and salmon. They then top their creations with ingredients such as seared foie gras, prune-and-armagnac aioli, and Asian coleslaw. The burgers fly out of the kitchen alongside plates stacked with sides and snacks that pay tribute to the classic burger joint, including spicy buffalo wings and seasoned fries.
Poshburger also embraces the comforting feel of the classic burger joint. Inside the simple cafeteria space, dark-blue-tiled walls surround the communal dining area—rows of polished tables and benches made from blond wood. The simple tables groan under the weight of the adventurous food and glasses filled with craft beers, 1 of more than 30 boutique wines, or the current milkshakes du jour.
Babycakes Cafe sustains eager brunch-munchers with a selection of breakfast and lunch fare from the classic to the anomalous.

If more savory fare beseeches your belly, feel free to nosh on Babycakes' traditional breakfast offerings such as country-fried steak and eggs ($10.95) or huevos rancheros ($9.95), all served with a choice of baby cakes, toast, or a scoop of white rice.

The Coffee Bean's location in Las Vegas has been open since 2001. Since then, the company has grown to more than 15 franchise-operated locations. Amid each café's handcrafted oak paneling wafts the aromas of more than 40 types of coffee and loose-leaf tea. The coffee blends, which are manually roasted in small batches every day, are incorporated into everything from the sugar-free Café Vanilla to the ice-blended Black Forest, a decadent combination of cherries and chocolate-covered espresso beans. Meanwhile, tea varieties range from peach oolong to Moroccan mint. The Coffee Bean's menu also features many hot and cold drinks that contain less than 200 calories.
Regularly considered one of Las Vegas’ best breakfast spots, The Cracked Egg is something of a Valley institution, with four locations throughout the city. This Northwest outpost sits inside a strip mall that faces Cheyenne Avenue, with a bit of front side patio space for outdoor seating when the days aren’t too warm. The specialty inside the sunny, friendly space is eggs, always eggs; served as an eggs benedict or fluffy omelet, or scrambled alongside skillets of fresh breakfast meat, the namesake egg is this eatery’s most popular choice by far. The coffee cake is a best seller too, of course, as are the pancakes, waffles and housemade corned beef hash, but the perpetually smiling staff will always recommend something with eggs – and for good reason.
Founded by ice-cream enthusiasts Donald and Susan Sutherland in 1988, Cold Stone Creamery has grown to more than 1,400 locations across North America. Each day, the shop's scoopers mix up fresh batches of ice cream and sorbet, which are served by the scoop, piled high in sundaes, and blended into shakes. After customers choose their desired flavor, the staffers toss the chilly sustenance upon a slab of frozen granite and fold in a smorgasbord of candy and nuts to achieve the ideal ice-cream-to-add-in ratio. Customers can dream up their own creations or opt for a signature masterpiece, sampling one of more than 11.5 million possible flavor combinations, which still await a brave conqueror to unlock them all. To accommodate sweets cravings at celebrations, staff members also dish out premade treats, such as ice-cream cakes and baked goods.
